Doug Burgum: Abortion Should Be “Left To The States”

The Hill reports:

GOP presidential candidate and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum (R) said Sunday that he would not sign a federal abortion ban if he was elected to the White House. “Well, my position is that I support the Dobbs decision, and this is the decision that should be left to the states,” Burgum told NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.”

Other GOP presidential hopefuls have avoided weighing in on whether they would sign a federal abortion ban. Former President Trump has remained evasive on whether he would support a federal ban, and even Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who signed a six-week ban in his state, has avoided answering whether he would support it on a national scale.
